So I have a Macbook late 07, I am very happy with this computer. However I am missing space.
So i read this thread Are these upgrades compatible with my Macbook?
And thougth I will do that to.
I bougth this
B.J.Trading EDB A/S - KVR667D2S5K2/4G - 2x2048 MB SO-DDR2 SDRAM

and this

500GB, 7200RPM HDD - 2,5" SATA » Laptops.dk - mrkevarer til lavpris! »

I can easilly intall the hardware. However when i turn on the mac afterwards nothing happens, black screen, alså when I put in the Mac OS install disc #1.

What am I missing / doing wrong ?
Best regards
Camilla

with the OSX disc in start the Mac holding C

This will boot from the DVD and let you install a fresh version of OSX onto the new disk.

Alternatively, re-install the old hard disk. Buy or borrow a a 2.5" sata USB enclosure and put the new disk in this. Use SuperDuper or Carbon Copy Cloner to clone the old disk onto the new disk then re-install the new disk into your Mac.

Now you'll have your Mac back exactly as it was but with the benefit of all the extra disk space!

External hard disk acquisition addict - but admitting the problem is the first step to a robust backup
